CASTAIC LAKE , Calif. -- Thousands of bikers will ride for the 31st Annual Love Ride, to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association on Oct. 25, 2014, with a full day of music, with The Doors’ Robby Krieger, Buckcherry, and more.

The Budweiser Presents 31st Annual Love Ride, Powered by GEICO Motorcycle, will feature Jay Leno as Grand Marshall and Hollywood celebrities, including Robert Patrick, Lorenzo Lamas, Willie G. Davidson and Peter Fonda. The Doors’ Robby Krieger returns to the Love Ride with his Jam Kitchen, and will rock the day-long concert. Buckcherry will play a set spanning their career, including songs from their brand new EP, “F#CK.” Attendees will also enjoy delicious food trucks, drawings for exclusive motorcycle items, a custom bike and stunt show and more.

Net proceeds from this year’s event will support children served by MDA living in Southern California and help them attend a weeklong, barrier-free summer camp in the area. MDA summer camp offers a wide range of activities specially designed for youngsters who have limited mobility or use wheelchairs. Each year, campers have an unmatched opportunity to develop lifelong friendships, share interests and build self-confidence.
Registration for Love Ride 31 is open at

Buckcherry’s Love Ride Debut

Buckcherry is currently on the road with Godsmack and Seether as part of the 2014 Rockstar UPROAR Festival, following the worldwide launch of their new EP, “F#CK.” UPROAR is the next step in a history of incendiary tours and festival appearances everywhere from Bamboozle with Bon Jovi to headlining Ink-N-Iron with Misfits and Pennywise and Sturgis. Buckcherry is just at home alongside Slipknot and Rob Zombie as they are AC/DC and Mötley Crüe.

“I hope everybody enjoys the fact that we're always pushing for something new while staying true to our rock 'n' roll roots,” said Keith Nelson. “We can’t wait to play the Love Ride for the first time, and help raise money for such a great cause.”

Added Josh Todd, “The big payoff is when someone finds inspiration in our music. Everything we do is right from the heart and with the Love Ride, people can immediately turn that inspiration into action, helping local kids.”

Robby Krieger Returns to Love Ride

The all-day concert kicks off the fourth decade of fundraising for charitable causes, and Robby Krieger has lent his incredible talent to twelve Love Ride events. This year, Robby brings his Jam Kitchen to play a rocking selection of hits.

Said Robby, “I was lucky enough to play the very first Love Ride back in the eighties. After that Oliver asked me back many time, and got to play with Eric Burdon, Kieth Emerson and others. That first Love Ride was really the first event of its kind, and broke new ground in the fundraising arena.”

This year, Robby is joined by his group, Jam Kitchen, which features three guys from Frank Zappas’ band: Arthur Barrow, Tommy Mars and Chad Wackerman. Added Robby, “We do our own music, as well as some Doors and Zappa tunes.”

Southern California Harley-Davidson Dealers Association Supporting the Love Ride

The Love Ride is sponsored by the Southern California Harley-Davidson Dealers Association, with Harley-Davidson dealers throughout the region hosting rides to the day-long concert and festival at Castaic Lake.

“My wife and I have attended almost every Love Ride since its inception, so I can testify that every year for the past 30 years this event has gotten better and better. With a big party and legendary music performances, the Love Ride is the epitome of the genuine Harley-Davidson lifestyle. Come join us for one hell of a good time at the most badass SoCal event of the year - Love Ride 31!” said Mark Ruffalo, president of the Southern California Harley-Davidson Dealers Association.
